SPERM is finally on the menu in Spain.
Cod’s sperm that is.
The Japanese delicacy, known as shirako, sees the testicle of the fish – containing its semen – served as a tapa.
It is usually served raw and with a seaweed sauce, although there is an option to have it fried.
The dish is available for the first time in Spain at Kiro Suhi, in Logroño, in the La Rioja region.
Diners who have tucked into the testicle-based menu item describe it as soft and ‘similar to the brains of a lamb’.
Others said it tasted of cream cheese.
